Anything to get our precious skin care working harder, right?

When I was a kid, I'd sit myself in front of the refrigerator in our house and be entertained for hours. In true '80s form, it was avocado green and half-covered in fridge magnets – souvenirs from all corners of the earth, little plastic animal figurines, shiny food replicas and ceramic flowers painted on with names I wish my mum had given me: Penelope after the Hanna Barbera cartoon, Victoria after Posh, obviously.

The collection was something majestic, but I was just as fascinated by what these magnets did. I'd peel off the thin plastic ones and stick them together, marvelling as they repelled each other on their magnet sides.

Today, we come full circle as I'm once again entranced by the power of magnets. But instead of dinky moulded plastic, it's a tool from SK-II that works to improves skincare's penetration into the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the epidermis) three times better than manual application.

Yes, this thing.

Designed to work with SK-II's Radical New Age Power (R.N.A) series, which spans the R.N.A Essence, R.N.A Cream and R.N.A Eye Cream, the new Magnetic Booster pulsates gently and consistently at 7,000 magnetic vibrations a minute.

The R.N.A series is itself already a powerhouse trifecta of anti-agers. A combination of SK-II's signature Pitera™ – the naturally-derived liquid from yeast fermentation – and RNArchitect™ Complex, which has concentrated PITERA™ alongside hydrolysed soy and yeast protein, the products transform the skin, infusing it with hydration, plumpness and firmness. After a just one jar, wrinkles and pores are visibly reduced and skin increasingly rejuvenated.

It's little wonder SK-II created the Magnetic Booster. With results this promising, anyone would want to be able to maximise its results, stretching each drop to its greatest effect.

The Magnetic Booster is now available at SK-II counters nationwide, sold in sets along with the R.N.A. Power Cream or with the R.N.A. Power Essence.

SK-II R.N.A. Power Magnetic Kit: R.N.A. Cream 80g and Magnetic Booster, RM675
SK-II R.N.A. Power Essence Magnetic Kit: R.N.A. Essence 50ml and Magnetic Booster, RM722
